Dennis McCann presents: “Badger Boneyards,” on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 6:30 p.m. The bodies are buried, but the stories are not.

From the ornate tombs of Milwaukee beer barons to displaced Chippewa graves and miniscule family plots, Badger Boneyards: The Eternal Rest of the Story unearths the stories of Wisconsin.

Join McCann as he discusses his book, Wisconsin cemeteries and the legends behind them. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

The event is free and open to everyone. Registration is required. Call the library at 534-3988.
